    -OR-

    2.) Use my on board Intel Pro Wireless 2200...

    That link I posted will tell you how to remove/replace the 586 kernel with a 686 kernel. Both cards will probably need the 686 kernel to work properly.

    replacing kernels... will that mean that all the software and stuff I have installed will need to be re-installed?

    Absolutely not.
    You will just be changing your kernel only.

    Alternatively, you can run Kernel Fix Script to install the latest i686 kernel instead of i586 kernel.

    I downloaded the script... how do I run it?

    This is just a guess:
    ./scriptname
    or
    sh scriptname

    Now you're past that milestone, you need to find the Windows driver. Find the .inf file on your driver CD. Then run the following (as root):

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -i /path/to/file.inf
    That should install it, to check it's working, run this.

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    It should say the driver is working and hardware is present, that being the case, modprobe.

    Code:
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    After that, you need to setup the connection.

    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid your_essid_here
    iwconfig wlan0 key s:your_key_here
    And finally, setup DHCP by running this.

    Code:
    dhcpcd

    I ran the 1st command you said and I got this :

    [root@localhost]# ndiswrapper -i /home/net5211.inf
    bash: ndiswrapper: command not found

    When you login as root use this
    su - don't forget the hyphen.
    Try again.
